I have waited long for this Challenge...
because I made a lousy impression during the last challenge (grand space opera), but I have more time for this one so you'll get to see what I'm made of...
at least I hope so.

Good luck to you all:)

I'm still looking for a better concept... I don't want to make something with a meaning, because I'm in a period where I had enough of that. Mayby I just want to do something funny or entertaining. But then again I'm a psychomaniacal horrorfreak :) , I'll think about it. This is my first idea, it's the servant of a big scary duelist, but he doesn't look to excited about the job.
In the final image te master will be walking to a massive duelgame where a twisted opponent is waiting for him. This servant (mayby in another style) will be carrying the sword of his master(a bigger one than this one) not giving a damn about the grotesque fighters.

Thats a good idea. Maybe the master can be smaller than the servant. But that is a nice concept.

NOOB!

sounds great,bring on more!!

The master is a professional fighter, in the concept he fights for money and fame. Here, the duels are like a sport.

Hi, I like your sketches very much, the last concept is stonger I think but you'll have to draw the serving character too, not just his arm, but what am I saying, that's what you had in mind anyway am I right? Keep it up, I'm watching!

good concept, i like your style of draw, i wait the suite, good work:thumbsup:

KarelWolf

Thx coCoKNIght and idd, in the final you wil also see the opponent and the arena.

That hand is just a joke.:)

I'm going to keep my first concept, I'm showing this one just for fun. Last night I was fooling around with some ideas and one popped out. THE NO-SO-FANTASTIC FOUR is a horrorgang of one big, cool, german master and his three freaks. The girl is spanish, the guy with no legs is an Italian and the mutant is a russian. The big german (doctor Frankmayer) is always struggleing with his authority because of his lack of self-confidence. The final image wouldefbeen like a cultmovieposter. But I'll go for the macho duelist and his bored servant.

NOOB!
03-27-2005, 12:16 PM
haha that looks great!

Squibbit
03-27-2005, 12:36 PM
argh that's.. argh..sad . .they got any powers or they just unfortunate
people who look like that ? crraaazy

KarelWolf
03-27-2005, 03:38 PM
HAHA, its sad yes, but they have some 'powers'. The german is a psychkiller with 6 lives, the spanish girl can fly and tell good jokes, the russian can shoot his explosive head but doesn't have a very good aim, then he grows a new one out of his trupetshaped neck. The Italian has no powers, that's why he has that signe saying 'defect' hanging down his neck.

I'm glad you visited my thread, Squibbit, I love your work.

This is the first compostionsketch, positioning the characters, ... and stuf.

03-27-2005, 08:23 PM
looks great,but either u shud make the main servant smaller or the master bigger.

KarelWolf
03-27-2005, 09:00 PM
I'm having trouble drawing because I almost broke my hand five days ago, Its healing though. I think I'm becoming a little bit to agressive, because I smached my hand against the door out of anger; harder then I planed :scream:. It's all swolen up and blue and purple, and it hurts when I draw to long. Talking about a good timing.

NOOB!
03-27-2005, 09:03 PM
maybe ur final composition shud have a door as ur master and a throbbing hand as the servant.....

KarelWolf
03-27-2005, 09:07 PM

This is a better compostition, I think, please tell me what you think of it.
I know its not realy a pretty image, its only for the compostition, not the coloring and stuff.

i like the idea and that servant sketch :) i also like your idea of bringing in modern sports theme to an old world sport.

04-01-2005, 11:16 PM
hahaha, "bread and games" would still work today, and i can clearly see the a future tv show coming exactly up the way your work looks like.
kewl work, the new pov is quiet fine so far. since this seems to be modern times, i could imagine some screens like in big stadions...
keep it up mate, very :thumbsup: kewl stuff. have fun and good luck!

hope the door didnt break ;) get well soon.

KarelWolf
04-04-2005, 10:45 PM
Thx for the idea, the1st_angel, but I'm thinking about changing my concept, not that I don't like this one, but its not realy my favorite style, you see I can take on many different styles but sometimes I forget to do what realy I want to do, so anyway... actualy I'm a bit disapointed that the door is ok (it's not a door in my house, it's one at school <I studie animation in Brussels>) In fact the door hasn't got a skratch! ...no you're right, It's a good thing I didn't break anything; I sometimes loose my temper:banghead: , that is not good... not... good.
Thx for bouthering though.

I for one love the compo.....and the style....along with the concept/idea......i would like to see this continued Karel........

It is real interesting to me and you have a great angle for viewing....I'll be watching for more.with this or any other concept you go with.......


Dendermonde you say...........Say hi to eveyone there and from beautiful Aalst too for me Karel.....:arteest:

I'll be looking for more.....Take care.....

I just needed a new concept becaus I haven\'t got time to try other styles. I have to go for a styl where I\'m pasionated about otherwis I wount be able to finish it. Like I\'ve sed, I\'m a psychostyle horrorfreak, and so... this is more the madness that I like: A horrormaster in his tempel fireing a layer saying: \"Now I\'m in a position where I dont have to respect the law, Sorry Bill, but your fired. I hope you understand.\" I like this concept because it shacks the conceptartworld. I hope your, friends, like it to.

Befor this concept I had another one: about a boy that is fed up with his social situation, where he is terrorized be some fellow studentassholes because they hate his babyface. One night the boy meets a horrormaster in his dreams. The boy wants to becom as frigtning as him so asks his to teach the way of the tramatic maniac :). The master sez: \" OK, little one, but then you gonne have to be my servant for a few days.\" You see the master was in the boys head long befor he met him and was sitting there quiet waiting for an exit, he had a plan, a masterplan, making the boy the ulimate terror. The boy was unaware about this plan, he thought that it was just something to scare away those fellow studentassholes. I like this story and will make a movie about it one day.
(I send you also that concept but I\'m not going to use it)

KarelWolf
04-09-2005, 05:04 PM
Thx Virtuoso, I hope you like my new concept to. And I'll say hello to Aalst for you the next time I go there. In the early days I had a girlfriend living in Aalst, then I went there almost every week.

Its funny becaus there used to be a peopleswar between Dendermonde and Aast, they hated eachother, but I'm talking the middle ages. Now we laugh about it with a tradition.

Anyway, my regards to your BIG, sunny California :scream: and you to take care.

cancer tejring, mon dieux, that is a huge change of way. looks like you're taking out a piece of students life and make some "selftherapeutical trow up" wich results a scary good new piece. even thought o liked the lod piece a lot, the new piece attracts with darkness and really hard feelings. hehe, i can see a process...

"master, i am here now since 5 years, collecting skulls. When will i get a new stage of my learnership? you said it's a few days. Master, humbly i may ask..."

"shut up unfaithfull brat. serve my will. now, for this dumb question you will collect skulls for another five years and i'll see if your worth my attention. You are not supposed to speak from now until i deciede something else. now work."

"but..."

"10 years. your fault. and might you dare..."

lol, keep it up! i see a lot of potential in your new direction! keep on goin Karel!!!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

wow, that picture has some great narative qualities to it! I realy like the line work, but i think it could be cleaned up just a Little bit so that color will be visible a little better in the end. Very nice. Has a tim burton quality to it.

I hope I'm right by calling this the lineart, usualy I directly start painting, only when I'm planing to keep the lines in the final image.


I wish I had more time for this contest, but school must come first, I hope you understand. I can't wait to begin the coloring.

I'm working on a good English text about the concept, I eventualy went for the boy who's met his 'evil' master in his dreams, so he's actualy his own master but he doesn't know it.
His anger is making the creature. Now the creature is his master and the boy is learning his way.

NOOB!

Take a picture of this ! You never know : it may help for the next Cgnetwork challenge : "Door wrestling featuring almost one angry human".

About your picture : pretty nice lineart. THe style of your non human character reminds me of Tsutomu Nihei.

Can't wait to see you starting with painting :thumbsup:

The last couple of sketches are brilliant!!

I love the sketchy feel to the first, darker version... and there's so much movement and expression in the second one. The pose of the kid and the big dark fella are so fluid.

And those heads are just too creeeeepy. So who cares what he has to collect them for.

The viewer can decipher what he or she wants from the picture.

Good stuff!!

I had soms time to add the first color. The blue is what is part of the cold, dark dream, the boy is living the dream so I gave him a warmer color.

This stage is finding a good contrast-plan.

Only the pointing hand of the master should be more clear, I now must find a way to add contrast there, so that you can see the hand better.

NOOB!
04-14-2005, 09:20 PM
hep contrast will make the hand better.



colors are coming along great

KarelWolf
04-14-2005, 10:21 PM
Vahn: thx.

spacesnail: It's funny but I idd have taken some pictures of my hand the day after the incident, I was shocked and scared that this would effect my ability to draw forever, but no, it's not broken.
Tsutomu Nihei, thx for that name. I seem to love his style.

artjunkie: thank you

duddlebug: thx, but brilliant is a big word :blush:
You're right about the viewers own vision.

What's up dude. i saw some of your works before and the line drawings for this... man this is looking quite amazingly wicked. The colours are great and the characters are just professionally designed. They are very intruiging characters and of course dark. Awesome dude. i'll be checking back later.

cheers :thumbsup:

your atmosphere is really good! the camera view is ideal.
personal remark : the heads laying on the ground should be more visible, i think.
keep up good work and good luck!

04-16-2005, 01:13 PM
Hello !!! Good work..I 've just to say that you should add some point of light to characters...in order to give them some "life"... they look to dark like background...

Good luck!!

Thank you very much to all, good or bad comments.:beer:

A very appropriate color palette, indeed! It looks good, as well as fitting. I hope as you refine it you'll make certain parts of this pop a bit more: Not only the main characters, but the morbid side of my wants to see mroe details on the bodies in the lewer right too (yech!) :-)
Good luck!

The big one is the master, but doesn't realy exist. It's a personalized frustration in the boy's subconsciousness.
In real life the boy is extreemly unhappy about how things are going; he has this idea that he never gets what he wants, that he has no friends, that nobody likes him because he looks like a toddler while his actualy 15 or 16, ok, there are those who pester him, but he should just ignore them. The problem is that he is too touchy and sensitive, he puts himself under perssure to be just and strong, but he's weak.
That search for mental strength can be done in different directions. Haider (the boy) chose the way of hate (the way that many weak figures choose), he hates people because they are pretentious, sometimes he hates himself for hating so much.
But it became stronger than himself; hate and frustration domminated his way of thinking compleetly.
Thats when the boy goes totaly mad. He keeps dreaming about this huge, deserted, dilapidated industrial estate; he calls it "koppenbeek" (=brook of heads) because there are brooks of heads running like veins trough the surface. There he meats his 'personalized frustration'.
To make the story short, the boy becoms the creature's servant in his dreams and later in real life (hehehe).

So it's about a person becomming the servant of his own hate and frustration.

That's the story, I like it and hope you do too.
c&c are most welcome.

TheFirstAngel
05-07-2005, 08:50 PM
Sory for the little delay. Great progress mate. Take care you din't loos too many midtones on the "koppenbeek", to keep things plastically enough, maybe add in on a few more places some decent specular highlights...
same on the mastrers left facehalf, its falling off a bit radical into the black. maybe light it up decent from down under, (those rebounces of the global illumination) to keep the contours.
How's your hand by the way? hehe, time's running, keep it up! best of all and keep on rocking!!!

Hey! Fantastic composition and colors you have there. I really like the feeling of a story behind it, it seems like it would fit in somehow with Terry Pratchett. (Yes, I am a closet follower...) Death waiting for someone to slip up...I'm not sure what the glowing sticks are but I like them!

Also, I love your depth of field. Nothing ruins a picture more than an unrealistic background. Good luck man...:thumbsup:

the1st_angel: Thx for the information. Good thing your image made it! Hope to hear from you in the future. Auf Wieder'schen'!:wavey:

Slav: wow thx man.

paperclip: Many many thanks for stopping by and thx for the friendly comments.
The glowing sticks? I don't know it myself where they are for (hehe), I planted them there to have some lightsources in the pretty dark forground, that's all.

This is the story, you don't have to read it if you don't want to. Never heard of Terry Pratchett befor :blush: , I'll go look it up who that is.

The big one is the master, but doesn't realy exist. It's a personalized frustration in the boy's subconsciousness.
In real life the boy is extreemly unhappy about how things are going; he has this idea that he never gets what he wants, that he has no friends, that nobody likes him because he looks like a toddler while he's actualy 15 or 16, ok, there are those who pester him, but he should just ignore them. The problem is that he is too touchy and sensitive, he puts himself under perssure to be just and strong, but he's weak.
That search for mental strength can be done in different directions. Haider (the boy) chose the way of hate (the way that many weak figures choose), he hates people because they are pretentious, sometimes he hates himself for hating so much.
But it became stronger than himself; hate and frustration domminated his way of thinking compleetly.
Thats when the boy goes totaly mad. He keeps dreaming about this huge, deserted, dilapidated industrial estate; he calls it "koppenbeek" (=dutch for brook of heads) because there are brooks of heads running like veins trough the surface. There he meats his 'personalized frustration'.
To make the story short, the boy becomes the creature's servant in his dreams and later in real life (hehehe).

So it's about a person becomming the servant of his own hate and frustration.
